Agrias hewitsonius olivencius has been described by Otto Staudinger in 1896. Some authors consider that subspecies as form of ssp. stuarti. Olivencius lives in Brazil around Sâo Paulo de Olivença. But some specimens found, more at West, at the Brazil/Peru border share characteristics of both subspecies which may indicate a transitional population.
